I will definitely keep them in mind for any future needs.
When we decided to renovate our bathroom it seemed like a no brainer to hire him. He estimated the job quickly and came back with a price we found to be reasonable. 15K would gut renovate our bathroom and fix plumbing issues we had with the tub since the day we moved into the house. We had explained that the entire point of the renovation was to not only to update the bathroom but most importantly to make the tub drain.
All of the estimating and job conversations were verbal and that was a big mistake.
The job began on December 2, 2013. I learned that second week after not hearing back from him that he had undergone surgery. I would not have elected to start the job then had I known this, but I let it slide because the man he had doing the work had been to our home before and we trusted him to be alone in our house. But the mistakes started pouring in.
The first big blunder was the placement of the can light over the tub. When I questioned it the worker said that
helped me come up with the design. When I came home from work there was only one shelf. The tile that I had special ordered was laid haphazardly and had to be ripped out and replaced. In all of these instances
communicating with his worker and the repairs were done in a couple of days each so the time added up.
As he recovered and we got deeper into the winter, he was not responsive to me. I was only communicating with the worker for most of the job. The worker did fix a lot of the mistakes but there were a lot of mistakes. When
As we got into March we were extremely frustrated that a job estimated to take 4 - 5 weeks was still dragging on. He came over to collect his final payment and we tested the tub. The plumbing had not been fixed and the water poured into my basement. He blamed the worker and had a plumber come over to make the repair. The plumber charged me $400 dollars to unclog the tub drain. This should never have been an additional expense as his was hired to fix the plumbing issues from the
beginning. On his last visit here, I was home alone with my 1 year old. I told him that I was concerned about what he was going to charge us since the job had taken so long and there were so many additional repairs. I continued to question why he had charged me additionally for the plumbing. He threw a temper tantrum in the middle of my kitchen and stormed out of my house, then stormed back in and continued to yell at me. I was horrified.
When we asked for the final bill he failed to deduct for the materials that he had me purchase (as he was too busy), and left off 2 of our previous deposits that he had already cashed. When my husband questioned the bill, his wife responded that she would take off the amount that we had already paid but that the materials in question (the bathroom mirror and the paint) were not included in our estimate. Our estimate was verbal so it is his word against mine. I was told the entire project would cost 15K and that would include materials (like the mirror and paint).
In the weeks following the job we needed several repairs which kept us from even using the bathroom and hired other companies to help us since we were so upset with how he treated me. We emailed him in June to tell him of some of the damages that we had covered but that we needed him to cover 2 of the larger problems. We invited him back to see some of the work that needed to be completely redone before having them repaired but we never heard back from him.
We are so upset that someone we trusted and paid a lot of money to would cause so much damage to our house and be so careless about it. Our fence ended up covered in stains from the wrong nails being used and some of the planks are cracked from poor installation. Neither of the two gates work. We have had to repair many large pieces of the bathroom that were not installed properly. We were hoping that he would take responsibility to make things right and he has not. We are heartbroken about the damages he made to our house. Some of the damages we cannot afford to fix but our checks cleared.
We were a little disappointed that they did not provide warranty on their work, but we were told they don't do that on exterior structures like sheds and that may be an industry standard. However,
Bottom line, we are quite satisfied with the final product and the relationship with
We think we're the best, and we can prove it.
